Each year the Biochemical Society looks to identify and celebrate outstanding science communicators with our annual Science Communication Competition. This is open to all undergraduate and postgraduate students and is your opportunity to showcase your SciComm talents.



There are two categories; written and video. Your entry must be bioscience themed and aimed at the general public.




The winning entries will be published in the Society’s magazine, The Biochemist and on the Society’s website. 



The 2017 Science Communication Competition is now closed. The next round will open in January 2018.
